The Arcade Stick is also ¥128000 (100 €) like the Mini itself (without taxes). Already preordered 2 of the gamepads but will definitely grab the Arcade Stick when it becomes available.

Mine came today. This thing is pretty great so far. The build quality is everything the Neo Geo Mini should have been.

The Virtua stick and handheld controller are pretty cool too. Definitely gonna mess around and see what else these work on.

Does anyone know if Sega have mentioned anything about offering updates in the future - i.e more games?

They've got such an under-exploited back catalog of arcade games from the 16-bit / super scaler era it's unreal... it's such a shame so many versions of Columns were put on the mini. I guess it must have been super popular in Japan back in the 90s.

He talks about the virtua fighter port alot. Im looking to get this basically for Revenge of Death adder. Atleast its better than shelling out for an arcade 1up cab. Sucks about the controller functionality though.

Edit: gamesack has a review up too. Going to watch that this morning.

I wonder if this will get hacked at any point? I'd love to play moonwalker and similar games on it.

Just ordered on from playasia.
Only one down here for sale was offered for €250,-. I'm not going to pay that much. Now for less than €150,- shipped.

Holy fuck, the first release was a bit underwhelming to me (I'm not a fan of most Sega System 16 games) but this TATE version is an absolute beast! Incredible lineup! Might actually pick this one up!!

The first AC mini was a hard pass for me, but this lineup really has me tempted. Gonna be tough to play some of those on that tiny ass screen though!
